H) Will becoming an NHS foundation trust mean more bureaucracy?

Will becoming an NHS foundation trust mean more bureaucracy?

It should mean less bureaucracy. We will cease to be supervised by the Department of Health (DH). The public interest is protected by the regulator, Monitor. They will check that we provide the services we are required to run, that our finances are sound, and that we run ourselves properly and provide excellent, safe care to our patients. Monitor is less concerned about the detailed decisions we make on services.
